Abstract
When a portable terminal unit in which a display-side housing and an operation-side housing are openably and closably coupled is in a closed state, a state detecting section detects that the portable terminal unit is in the closed state, and transmits its signal to a control section. Then, a lock control section validates the operation of the auxiliary operation section. Thereafter, when a coupling section that couples a display-side housing and an operation-side housing turns, the state detecting section detects that the portable terminal unit is in other states than the closed state, and sends its signal to the control section. Then, the lock control section invalidates the operation of the auxiliary operation section which is provided on other surface than surfaces opposed each other in the closed state, so that it is prevented from causing the erroneous operation.

[0031] A portable terminal unit 100 shown in FIGS. 1A to 3B is applied to a mobile telephone, in which reference numeral 101 a is a display-side housing, reference numeral 101 b is an operation-side housing, reference numeral 102 is a main operation section, reference numeral 102 a is a plurality of keys in the main operation section 102, reference numeral 103 is an auxiliary operation section, reference numeral 103 a is a three-directional lever key in the auxiliary operation section 103, reference numeral 103 b is a side key in the auxiliary operation section 103, reference numeral 104 is a coupling section, reference numeral 105 is an antenna, reference numeral 106 is a display section, reference numerals 107 a and 107 b are speakers, and a reference numeral 108 is a microphone.

[0032] In this portable terminal unit 100, the display-side housing 101 a and the operation-side housing 101 b are openably and closably coupled by the coupling section 104. FIGS. 1A and 1B show the closed state in which the display-side housing 101 a is put on the main operation section 102 of the operation-side housing 101 b. When the display-side housing 101 a is rotated about the coupling section 104 at an angle of 180 in the direction of an arrow from this closed state, the portable terminal unit becomes the opened state as shown in FIGS. 2A and 2B.

[0033] Further, in the opened state, the display section 106 and the two speakers 107 a and 107 b are provided on a surface, which is in the opposite side to the operation-side housing 101 b, of the display-side housing 101 a. The both speakers 107 a and 107 b are provided up and down of the display section 106, and the microphone 108 is provided on the surface having the main operation section 102, of the operation-side housing 101 b.

[0034] Further, in the opened state, the auxiliary operation section 103 is provided on other surfaces than the surfaces opposed each other, of the both housings 101 a and 101 b, that is, on side surfaces of the both housings 101 a and 101 b in FIGS. 1A to 3B. This auxiliary operation section 103 has the three-directional lever 103 a located on the side surface of the operation-side housing 101 b, and the side key 103 b located on the side surface of the display-side housing 101 a.

[0035] Further, as shown in FIGS. 3A and 3B, in the opened state, the surface on the opposite side to the surface having the display section 106, of the display-side housing 101 a is inclined to the surface having the main operation section 102, of the operation-side housing 101 b at the predetermined angle θ (0<θ≦70).

[0036] By the above configuration, the display section 106 is always exposed to the outside in both of the closed state and the opened state, and the main operation section 102 is exposed outside only in the opened state thereby to perform the operation.

[0037] The closed state means the state shown in FIGS. 1A and 1B in which the display-side housing 101 a and the operation-side housing 101 b are superimposed each other and the main operation section 102 of the operation-side housing 101 b is covered with the display-side housing 101 a. The opened state means the state shown in FIGS. 2A to 3B in which the display-side housing 101 a moves in relation to the operation-side housing 101 b and the main operation section 102 is exposed outside. Further, the invention can be applied not only to the portable terminal unit in which the display-side housing 101 a turns in relation to the surface having the main operation section 102, of the operation-side housing 101 b from the closed state shown in FIGS. 1A and 1B, but also to a portable terminal unit in which the display-side housing slides in relation to the surface having the main operation section 102, of the operation-side housing from the closed state shown in FIGS. 1A and 1B, whereby the main operation section is exposed outside, and a portable terminal unit in which the display-side housing can be turned in relation to the surface having the main operation section, of the operation-side housing about a parallel axis from the closed state shown in FIGS. 1A and 1B, and the display-side housing can be turned at an angle of 360 in relation to an axis vertical to the above axis, whereby the display section can be always exposed outside.

[0038] The display section 106 displays menu items on various functions provided for the portable terminal unit 100, an image file, e-mail contents received by the antenna 105, and various set screen.

[0039] The main operation section 102 has a key group on which letters and numerals are printed, and is used in order to perform operations corresponding to various functions such as call-making, call-ending, phone number-entering, mail letter-entering, and selection and setting of menu items displayed in the display section 106. A plurality of keys 102 a in the main operation section 102 can especially perform vertical and horizontal operations, and a press operation, whereby the menu item displayed in the display section 106 is selected by the vertical and horizontal operations, and can be set by the press operation. Further, a transmission or reception mail display screen can be scrolled by the vertical operation.

[0040] The auxiliary operation section 103 has the three-directional lever key 103 a and the side key 103 b. The three-directional lever key 103 a can be performed with vertical and horizontal operations and a press operation, whereby the menu item displayed in the display section 106 is selected by the vertical and horizontal operations, and can be set by the press operation. Further, the transmission or reception mail display screen can be scrolled by the vertical operation. Further, the side key 103 b can be performed with the press operation, and by this press operation, the application can be started or the call during the call can be ended.

[0041] The speaker 107 a and 107 b enables the user to hear the voice of the other party in the call time. According to the open and closed states, the operations of the both speakers 107 a and 107 b are switched. Namely, in the closed state, the speaker 107 b is not operated but only the speaker 107 a is operated. In the opened state, the speaker 107 a is not operated but only the speaker 107 b is operated.

[0042] The microphone 108 collects the voice of the user in the call time. In the closed state, the microphone 108 is covered with the speaker 107 b. However, by raising the sound-collecting rate of the microphone 108, the sound collection can be sufficiently performed.

[0043] Next, referring to the block diagram shown in FIG. 4, the inner configuration of the portable terminal unit 100 will be described. Reference numeral 4 is a control section which performs control of the whole of the portable terminal unit 100. Reference numeral 2 is a wireless section which delivers transmission and reception electronic waves between the antenna 105 and the control section 4. Reference numeral 3 is a state detecting section which (detects rotation of the coupling section 104 thereby to) detect whether the portable terminal unit 100 is in the closed state or in the opened state. Reference numeral 4 a is a lock control section which renders the operation of the auxiliary operation section 103 inoperative or operative.

[0044] According to the portable terminal unit 100 of the invention, in the opened state, the main operation section 102 is exposed outside and the operation becomes possible. Therefore, the operation according to the contents displayed in the display section 106 can be performed by the main operation section 102. Further, in this state, a call using the speaker 107 b and the microphone 108 is possible. In the closed state, the main operation section 102 is covered with the display-side housing 101 a and the operation cannot be performed. Therefore, using the auxiliary operation section 103 in place of the main operation section 102, the operation according to the contents displayed in the display section 106 can be performed, and also a call using the speaker 107 a and the microphone 108 is possible.

[0045] Next, the movement, relating to rendering the operation of the auxiliary operation section 103 of both of the three-directional lever key 103 a and the side key 103 b in the portable terminal unit 100 of the invention to be inoperative, will be described with reference to FIG. 5.

[0046] Firstly, at a step S501, whether the portable terminal unit 100 is in the opened state or in other states than the opened state is determined by state detecting section 3. When the portable terminal unit 100 is in the opened state, the state detecting section 3 detects that the portable terminal unit 100 is in the opened state, and transmits its signal to the control section 4. Then, the lock control section 4 a shuts off electric connection of the auxiliary operation section 103 of both of the three-directional lever key 103 a and the side key 103 b thereby to render the operation of the auxiliary operation section 103 inoperative (S502) Thereafter, in the case that the turn of the coupling section 104 is not performed, the auxiliary operation section 103 is kept in the state where the operation is inoperative. However, when the turn of the coupling section 104 is performed, the state detecting section 3 detects that the portable terminal unit 100 is in other states than the opened state, and sends its signal to the control section 4 (S503). Then, the lock control section 4 a performs the electric connection of the auxiliary operation section 103 thereby to render the operation operative (S504).

[0047] Further, at the step S501, when it is determined that the portable terminal unit 100 is in other states than the opened state, that is, the closed state or the turning state, the lock control section 4 a performs the electric connection of the auxiliary operation section 103 thereby to render the operation operative (S504).

[0048] As described above, the operation of the auxiliary operation section 103 is operative in the closing state and in the turning state, and it is to be inoperative in the opened state. Hereby, when the user holds the operation-side housing 101 b with his hand in the opened state in order to make or receive calls, even if he presses down the auxiliary operation section 103 erroneously, it is possible to prevent the erroneous operation from being caused.

[0049] Next, as a second embodiment, the operation of the auxiliary operation section 103 of both of the three-directional lever key 103 a and the side key 103 b may be operative only in the closed state, and it may be inoperative in the opened state and in the housing turning state.

[0050]FIG. 6 is a flow chart for explaining a portable terminal unit 100 that is a second embodiment of the invention.

[0051] Firstly, at a step S601, whether the portable terminal unit 100 is in the closed state or in other states than the closed state is determined by a state detecting section 3. When the portable terminal unit 100 is in the closed state, a state detecting section 3 detects that the portable terminal unit 100 is in the closed state, and transmits its signal to a control section 4. Then, a lock control section 4 a performs electric connection of an auxiliary operation section 103 thereby to render the operation operative (S602). Thereafter, in the case that a turn of a coupling section 104 is not performed, the auxiliary operation section 103 is kept in the state where the operation is operative. However, when the turn of the coupling section 104 is performed, the state detecting section 3 detects that the portable terminal unit 100 is in other states than the closed state, and sends its signal to the control section 4 (S603). Then, the lock control section 4 a shuts off the electric connection of the auxiliary operation section 103 thereby to render the operation of the auxiliary operation section 3 inoperative (S604).

[0052] Further, at the step S601, when it is determined that the portable terminal unit 100 is in other states than the closed state, that is, the opened state or the turning state, the lock control section 4 a shuts off the electric connection of the auxiliary operation section 103 thereby to render the operation of the auxiliary operation section 3 inoperative (S604).

[0053] As described above, the operation of the auxiliary operation section 103 is operative only in the closed state, and its operation is always inoperative in the opened state and in the turning state. Hereby, when the user holds an operation-side housing 101 b with his hand in the opened state in order to make or receive calls, even if he presses down the auxiliary operation section 103 erroneously, it is possible to prevent the erroneous operation from being caused. Further, when the user operates to open or close the housings with his hand, it is possible to effectively prevent him from causing the erroneous operation by pressing down the auxiliary operation section 103 erroneously.

[0054] Further, in this portable terminal unit 100, by long press of the three-directional lever key 103 a, both of the three-directional lever key 103 a and the side key 103 b in the closed state can be made inoperative. When the portable terminal unit 100 becomes an opened state where the three-directional lever key 103 is long pressed once, the three-directional lever key 103 a is operative, and the side key 103 b keeps inoperative. Further, when the three-directional lever key 103 is long pressed again, both of the three-directional lever key 103 a and the side key 103 b in the closed state can be made operative. Therefore, when both of the three-directional lever key 103 a and the side key 103 b are made inoperative in the state where the two housings 101 a and 101 b are closed when the portable terminal unit 100 is carried, it is possible to prevent the portable terminal unit 100 from causing the erroneous operation.

[0055] As described above, in these embodiments, the operations of both of the three-directional lever key 103 a and the side key 103 b are inoperative. However, the operation of either of them may be rendered inoperative and operative.

[0056] Further, in these embodiments, though the invention is applied to the mobile telephone, it may be applied to other portable terminal units such as a PDA and the like.
